Divorce is a tragedy because the rate at which divorce is going is becoming more alarming then it has been in decades. According to Averbach in Banschick Mark article on the high failure rate of second and third marriages who said that "In the U.S we have 50% of first marriages, 67% of second marriages and 75% of third marriages end in divorce" (Mark). This implies that divorce from first marriages do not give a guarantee that the second and third marriages are going to work, rather it is telling us that those later marriages might as well crumble.
